WAR OF THE MERRANAI
by Kevin J. Herbst
Malthus Kierin always dreamed of adventuring, of making his mark upon the world of Kalan. After he earns his robe and staff, rewards for passing the tests required to become a wizard, the door to his dreams stands open. However, a nightmare lurks on the other side, a black-hearted wizard who, along with his vile undead minions, systematically assassinates all of Kalan’s heroes, and then hunts Malthus.
After a narrow and expensive victory, that nearly split Malthus’s band of companions apart, they control the Stone of Zoral, a powerful artifact that can reverse the tide of darkness sweeping across the land. A decisive battle approaches as the enemy’s forces converge on the few remaining outposts of free peoples remaining in Kalan. Can the Merranai of prophecy, welding the Stone, reclaim lands lost and avert an age darkness?

Just when you think you know everything about these notorious men, Sherry Monahan comes along with a unique angle: the women in their lives, who knew them better than anyone, and have their own unique stories to tell. Wives, lovers, prostitutes … Who were these women? Where did they come from? How did they meet these men? The Earp brothers were some tough men, so their women must’ve been some pretty tough customers themselves. After all, who knows a man better than his woman?”- Bruce Boxleitner, actor and writer
